The beating retreat ceremony conducted by the Border Security Force (BSF) every weekend at Suchetgarh Border Outpost on the International Border (IB) has been suspended till further notice in the wake of the sudden increase in the Covid cases in the country. 

“In view of the surge in Covid positive cases and latest Covid related SOPs/guidelines, the beating retreat ceremony shall not be held from today (Sunday) onwards, till further orders,” the Jammu divisional administration said. 

The event was launched in October 2021 as part of the border tourism promotion programme. It had seen a large number of visitors which included tourists and school students from across the country.
